    I don't have one for trade, sorry. But I do have some advice:
    I'm not sure where you ussually grow your Nepenthes but I can speak for myself and at least two other growers when I say that Talangensis is a finicky plant. It seems to almost enjoy its own suffering and ussually goes into decline on windowsills. Mine did.
    If you're one of those lucky people who grow Nepenthes outdoors like the Nepenthes around the house guy, then maybe you'll have a better shot. But I guess I'll just warn you that this one doesn't really grow like sanguinea or judith finn. You'll steady highland conditions. At least thats my experience.
    Just making sure you know. If you think that you have better windowsill conditions than I do (which is like 65% humidity during the day, 30-40% at night, 80 degrees during day and 65 at night, with flourecents), then give it a shot! You probably have better night time humidity than I do.
    If you have a terrarium than mabye you'll have better luck...I don't know but I thought you were a windowsill grower from your other posts. I'll probably post this and then it will turn out that you have a greenhouse or something lol.

    Thanks! Once I get more plants I can maybe build a separate highland collection outside. Because the outside conditions are perfect for them =)

    talangensis for me was one of 2 hard plants to grow. that and muluensis x lowii but thats a different story. i grew talangensis in my terrarium. in a terrarium where plants like lowii, aristo, tentaculata, and heliamphora grow... and pitcher!! that darned plant wouldnt put on any growth or make any pitchers for almost 10 months. its such a finiky plant for lots of people. i still dont know what the heck was wrong with it. humidity was 70-85% all the time. and temps got up to 85 during the day and 60 at night. like i said. i have harder neps than that that grow WAY better.
